bounces off of me like rubber

Let me start by saying I don't think Cormac will live to see 5. If you are still confused about the bull in a china cabinet second child syndrome this story might help clarify things. First look at the picture below and understand that Cormac was on the chair and I was leaning against the counter where the sink is, (please ignore the mess).

I was talking to Jason who was standing roughly where the picture was taken from. We were having somewhat of an intense conversation which had my full attention. Suddenly someone yells "cannonball!!" and I feel a small body bounce off of me and then hear a loud thud!! Yep, it was my Cormac. He jumped from the chair assuming I would catch him, and I didn't, and then he fell, hard. Luckily Jason was there to be the supportive, comforting parent because I literally laughed so hard I peed myself a little!!! We are very impressed with his air-time between the chair and the counter and are seriously considering signing him up for basketball. Don't worry, he's fine, just a bump or two and a small weird bruise next to his nose. I'm sure he'll live, for now, but I might die from laughter or embarrassment from admitting I peed myself a little.

Angela--Cormac sounds just like his father--you have my full empathy!

second children are crazy. i saw the picture of the kitchen and a chair and a stove and started to panic that it would be a burn story... oh, and i've got some doosies of urinary incontinence stories thanks to to my many pregnancies.
